There are various things which are available for both but more expensive for the Mac version. There was something I ran across today, a list of Mac keyboard shortcuts. BTW, for those who don't know, a standard three button USB mouse works perfectly with Macs--their newer mice also seem to allow right clicking, though it takes a bit of practice to only get the right side of the mouse--it's not a separate button, the mouse looks the same, but if you push the right side of it, it's like right-clicking. Ah, here's the Mac keyboard shortcut page. http://creativebits.org/keyboard_shortcuts_in_os_x He left off some--for example, F11 will move all the windows to the side, F9 makes them all small so you can see each one, stuff like that. I might be wrong on which key does which. However, some excellent reading for Mac owners, or those planning to become Mac owners can be found at http://www.tekserve.com/about/faq.html Choose which Faq and download the PDF. -- Scott Robbins PGP keyID EB3467D6 ( 1B48 077D 66F6 9DB0 FDC2 A409 FA54 EB34 67D6 ) gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys EB3467D6 Xander: Isn't that what they called The Slayer?
